Answer

In view of the wide spectrum of clinical manifestations of MEN1 and the complexities in its management, Endocrine Society guidelines recommend that patients with MEN1 and their families be cared for by a multidisciplinary team comprising relevant specialists with experience in the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine tumors. The guidelines also recommend that the overall care of these patients and their families be coordinated by an endocrinologist with expertise in MEN syndromes. [1]
